And you’re not alone.

Most of us feel that making friends as an adult is SO AWKWARD!

Without the safety net of the school playground, it can be AWKWARD to start a friendship from scratch and on your own! 

From knowing…

 And the root of awkwardness is most often FEAR.

…the fear of saying the wrong thing and being JUDGED.

…or worse, REJECTED.

WOMEN ARE CRAVING CONNECTION.

Seriously! The days of middle school friendship are behind us – we are far more accepting of each other now (promise!) 

AND IF WE CAN PUSH THROUGH THE AWKWARDNESS, IT’S LIKELY TO BE MET WITH ACCEPTANCE.

Nearly every step of the friend-making process has elements of awkwardness. But the truth is: If we value friendship, we have to value avoiding awkwardness more. It’s better to embrace it and push through. And, in this episode, I’ll share 5 practices for how you can do just that.

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb title=”VILLAGES DON’T JUST HAPPEN. THEY’RE CREATED.” use_icon=”on” font_icon=”%%202%%” icon_color=”#7ebec5″ icon_placement=”left” content_max_width=”1100px” use_icon_font_size=”on” icon_font_size=”22px” _builder_version=”4.4.6″ header_font=”Lato|700|||||||” header_font_size=”16px” header_line_height=”1.4em” body_font=”||||||||” custom_margin=”|||” animation_style=”slide” animation_direction=”bottom” animation_intensity_slide=”5%”]

There are five key elements when it comes to making friends, with one of the most important being just showing up and putting ourselves out there. In this episode, I’ll share exactly what to say, how to say it, and when to say it to go from awkward encounter to fierce friend.
